CHAPTER. DC Motors. 8. Instructor Name: (Your Name ). Learning Objectives. List the components of a typical starting (cranking) motor Describe how interacting magnetic fields cause the armature in an electric motor to rotate
Two magnetic fields that interact with each other combine to form a single magnetic field. If the arrows on the magnetic lines of force of both magnetic fields are pointing in the same direction, the resulting magnetic field is strengthened. If the arrows on the magnetic lines of force are pointing in opposite direction, the resulting magnetic field is weakened.
Figure 8-3(A) Current-carrying conductor placed in magnetic field causes an interaction between magnetic fields; conductor is compelled to move from strong magnetic field to weak field. (B) Current-carrying conductor formed into a loop is compelled to rotate around its axis to move from strong field to weak field.
Conductors that are carrying current are compelled (want) to move out of a stronger magnetic field into a weaker magnetic field.
